Required Participation Forms

PTA requires a parent-signed waiver for each student participating in the PTA promotion party. 

Charlotte Wood requires a parent-signed code of conduct for each student participating in the PTA promotion party. 

Baby Picture Wall

For the 8th grade promotion party we would like to create a Baby Picture Wall of our students.  Please bring in a 4 X 6 picture (hard copy only) with your student’s first and last name on it (either on the back or on the envelope) to the CW office and place it in the designated box by FRIDAY, APRIL 21st.

WHAT KIND OF PICTURE?  Color or Black and White.  Anything that captures your 8th grader as a baby or a toddler, and lets his or her adorableness shine through.  It needs to be a copy as we can not guarantee the condition when returned. If you have questions, please contact:  Jennifer Vasconi, jenvasconi@comcast.net

Sign Up Genius Links
